Scientists are Poets

By Kasper, age 11

Where would we be without scientists?

In a black hole of misinformation.

The same goes for poets,

Who gave us their fulsome knowledge.

Scientists are poets, aren’t they?

They fill our minds with explosions of knowledge,

They gave us gravity.

Not all gravities are the same though, reading gravity is left to right,

And a poet found that out.

The DNA of the words linking, making the poem perfect,

The ideas pulsing down the test tube of a stanza,

The chemistry of the poem: the metaphors, the personification.

Where would we be without poets?

Where would we be without scientists?

 

Stuck in a black hole of misinformation.
